CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) 

CVEID: CVE-2015-0204
DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability in the OpenSSL ssl3_get_key_exchange
    function could allow a remote attacker to downgrade the security of
    certain TLS connections. An OpenSSL client accepts the use of an RSA
    temporary key in a non-export RSA key exchange ciphersuite. This
    could allow a remote attacker using man-in-the-middle techniques to
    facilitate brute-force decryption of TLS/SSL traffic between
    vulnerable clients and servers. This vulnerability is also known as
    the FREAK attack.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/99707 for the
    current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-0192
DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability in the IBM implementation of the Java
    Virtual Machine may, under limited circumstances, allow untrusted
    code running under a security manager to elevate its privileges.
CVSS Base Score: 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/101008 for the

CVEID: CVE-2015-0486
DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability related to the Deployment
    component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive
    information.
CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/102335 for the
    current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-2808
DESCRIPTION: The RC4 algorithm, as used in the TLS protocol and SSL
    protocol, could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive
    information. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to remotely
    expose account credentials without requiring an active
    man-in-the-middle session. Successful exploitation could allow an
    attacker to retrieve credit card data or other sensitive information.
    This vulnerability is commonly referred to as "Bar Mitzvah Attack".
CVSS Base Score: 5

    Extension provider to accept SSL/TLS connections are vulnerable to a
    denial of service attack due to an unspecified vulnerability.

    Machine may allow untrusted code running under a security manager to
    bypass permission checks and view sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/101908 for the
    current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) 

CVEID: CVE-2015-0138
DESCRIPTION: A vulnerability in various IBM SSL/TLS implementations could
    allow a remote attacker to downgrade the security of certain SSL/TLS
    connections. An IBM SSL/TLS client implementation could accept the use
    of an RSA temporary key in a non-export RSA key exchange ciphersuite.
    This could allow a remote attacker using man-in-the-middle techniques
    to facilitate brute-force decryption of TLS/SSL traffic between
    vulnerable clients and servers. This vulnerability is also known as the
    FREAK attack.
